Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at the ruins in Tulum, Mexico.
Time
Time was early morning when the traditional dancers come out.
Lighting
It was natural lighting although overcast this day. I was a bit worried about rain so I left my DSLR camera in the vehicle and only had the cell camera.
Equipment
Since I was worried about rain and my good camera, all I had was my iPhone 6+
Inspiration
I love dance, culture, and wild makeup. This guy had all three attributes so I leap at the chance to photograph him and his crew.
Editing
I always edit my photographs after the fact. I’m sort of fastidious this way. Love the editing almost as much as the photography. This shot was cropped in close range on his face, then I added some HDR into the photo for that punch!
In my camera bag
DSLR, lens covers, lens cleaners, normal Sony point n shoot, extra battery, extra SD cards, mini tripod (for iPhone), flash & diffuser for DSLR.
Feedback
Yes!! First, you have to venture out of the house! Take an adventure! Do not be afraid to ask for the photo! Be sure the lighting is good enough for the shot, then do not be afraid to edit on the edgy side.
